Albany- Continuing their commitment to the brave men and women currently serving in Iraq, New York State Senator Michael F. Nozzolio (R-Fayette) and Assemblyman Gary Finch will hold a holiday drive to collect non-perishable items to be sent to American troops stationed overseas.

Senator Nozzolio and Assemblyman Finch are asking the community to drop off non-perishable items to either Senator Nozzolio’s office located at 119 Fall Street in Seneca Falls or his Auburn Office at 69 South Street. The holiday drive officially kicks-off on Tuesday, December 19th and concludes on Monday, January 8th.

Donations may include non-perishable items such as sweatshirts, disposable hand wipes and sanitizer, instant coffee, dry mix beverages such as Crystal Light and Tang, pipe cleaners, Q-tips, handi-wipes, writing paper, envelopes, pens, and hard candy.
